For as serious as some schools take annual spring football games, some pretty silly things tend to happen at them. Like country music star Darius Rucker scoring a touchdown.
That’s exactly what happened during South Carolina’s spring game on Saturday, as the former Hootie & the Blowfish frontman, and huge Gamecocks fan, got the chance to take the field. And he took full advantage.
Rucker wasn’t exactly covered, but was still under plenty of pressure to reel in the pass. Granted, the exact same thing happened to the South Carolina secondary multiple times last year during their opening game demolition at the hands of Texas A&M.
The 48-year-old may have some trouble getting NCAA eligibility, but the Gamecocks could use all the help they can get. Steve Spurrier will obviously find a way to beat beat Georgia again, but South Carolina could be in for another rebuilding year after a disappointing 7-6 season in 2014.
Rucker was recently asked to compose a fight song for South Carolina by Spurrier, who has also been paling around with Kenny Chesney.
